Most aircraft with rotary engines had the bottom of the cowl cut away,directing the oil downward,hopefully away from the pilot.

Can you imagine the sticky,gooey, mess of castor oil at a COLD 5,000 feet?
I wonder how you knew that it is a pic of a full size in post #11
I guess I am the only one not realizing that when looking at the picture.

Thanks for the information.

The size of the grass against the tires did it for me..

Model tires are always lost in the grass....ha ha.
